City attracts around 20,000 students (over 40% postgraduate level) from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.
In the last decade, City has almost tripled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research. During this period, City has made significant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university.
The School of Science and Technology (SST) is looking for two outstanding researchers as Presidential Fellows to nurture and develop research excellence in the areas of Machine Learning for Complex Engineering Problems and Quantum Computing Theory and Development of Quantum Algorithms. Our new strategy prioritises research at the frontier of practice. We foster important, impactful, and engaged research. With a unique vision of how to make a difference, you will shape the future of research at the University and in your own field. Three years of protected research time will allow you to pursue a high-quality and inventive research agenda and build an independent research career.
You will lead or become part of an SST team, working on a specific, multidisciplinary research topic. You will collaborate with the School’s academics to publish research findings in conferences and journals, prepare new proposals for external funding, and support the supervision of doctoral students. Academic mentoring arrangements will be agreed to support development plans and help Fellows to reach their potential. You may be asked to undertake a limited amount of teaching in order to support your integration and to help prepare for a permanent academic position at the end of the Fellowship.
